Wandering around Paris

It was raining lightly this morning.   We used some walking routes as guidelines to explore the Latin Quarter not far from where we are staying.  

Of course the morning started with coffee and croissant (& an extra pain au chocolat for Andrew) to give us strength and energy.   




A bit of a look around Place St. Michel before heading towards Musee de Cluny and the Sorbonne and the Pantheon. A wander through the bare Jardins du Luxembourg where we took a couple of photos. Apparently I often give instructions when I hand my camera over to Andrew!

Lunch was back across the river near Les Halles.  The specials of the day were Veal Roast or Head of Veal.  if you are not sure what Tete de Veau is this might help to explain why I suggested Andrew didn't choose that.  Http://www.jancisrobinson.com/articles/20070614_2.html.  I suspect this happy face might have not looked quite so happy if he was eating the Tete de Veau :-)



A bit more wandering & exploring before returning to our hotel area and the Rue Mouffetard - a bit of a food, wine and specialty goods street.  We enjoyed window shopping but were very glad to get back to the hotel and rest the feet.  We haven't spent a lot of time in lace up shoes while in Laos and we noticed the change pounding the pavements.
